Please post your best work with it.

I tried the Rokkor
hoping for a new love
I found my true love
holding my Zuiko 50/1.2

I love photographing my love with my love;

This is still my favourite 50-ish lens, by far.

Well, I sold mine a while back and regret doing so. There is something very special about this Rokkor.

I still have 2 of these and enjoy using them a lot. There's other interesting f/1.2-ish 50s out there but the Rokkor has a lot of specialness to it. I'll post the modern photo lens tests soon. It was the best 50-ish f/1.2 they had ever tested, from what I have seen.

Mmm... They liked the later version *much* more than the earlier one, for whatever reason. The one they loved was I think a 259xxx(?), I'll have to look it up. It was a rubber-grip version.

That just goes to show, once again, that there is some serious sample variation in the Rokkor 58/1.2. I never had a rubber grip version (6 copies) that matched my 200xxxx. A few of them were close...

But even an "average" sample of this lens is relatively excellent (relative to other 50s I have tried, that is) IMO.

Here are some of my pics. All shots were taken wide open on Canon 40D and in jpeg under low light. I wish I had used RAW then. These shots were taken at The Price of Freedom at Smithsonian Museum, Washington DC.
